Description

This book is the first comprehensive account of the changing role of men and the construction of masculinity in contemporary Japan. The book moves beyond the stereotype of the Japanese white-collar businessman to explore the diversity of identities and experiences that may be found among men in contemporary Japan, including those versions of masculinity which are marginalized and subversive. The book makes a significant contribution to our understanding of contemporary Japanese society and identity. This edited collection includes discussions about transgendering men, working class men, body aesthetics, transnational marriages, domestic violence, AIDS, representations of homosexuality, fatherhood and struggles for a masculine meaning in life beyond work within Japan. This is a significant contribution to our understanding of contemporary Japanese society and identity. It will be of interest to students and researchers of Anthropology, Sociology and Gender Studies as well as Japanese Studies.
